Incandescent Grow Lights

Don’t be fooled by Incandescent lights.
Incandescent grow lights will typically produce the red-yellowish end of the light spectrum with an approximate color temperature of around 2700 K. Though they are many times labeled as growing lights, they are not good growing lights. The are much less efficient than fluorescent lights or typical HID grow lights. Their average life span is only around 700+ hours, and they are better at converting the electricity they consume into heat instead of into light.
